We will kick things off this April with a lightning talk from Khalid Abutayeb presenting: A Red Teamers Lunch Box – Raspberry PIE Included
For our main speaker, we are excited to have our very own Mark Stanislav presenting: Hide Yo’ Kids: Hacking Your Family’s Connected Things
This presentation will cover security research on Internet-connected devices targeting usage by, or for, children. Mark will discuss the vulnerabilities he found during this research, including account takeovers, device hijacking, backdoor credentials, unauthorized file downloading, and dangerously out-of-date protocols & software. Devices discussed will include Internet-connected baby monitors, a GPS-enabled platform to track children, and even a Wi-Fi & Bluetooth-connected stuffed animal. Details about mobile reverse engineering, hardware hacking, network traffic analysis, and other research techniques will be presented to help others learn about methods to perform their own research.
Curious about how well your privacy and safety are being taken care of by IoT vendors? Interested in IoT security research and want to understand what flaws are being found in devices today? Skip the hype-only stunt hacking and come hear Mark discuss real-world examples of issues that actively threatened the privacy and safety of the families using connected devices. After all, if it ‘takes a village to raise a child’ it’s going to take a lot of hackers to secure them in the Internet of Things.
